Naturopathic treatments can help children with various medical conditions such as asthma, allergies, gastro-intestinal conditions, skin problems, headaches, diabetes, learning disorders, and Down Syndrome.
Allergies and Asthma
People with seasonal allergies commonly react to pollens and grasses such as ragweed. A recent study in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine linked the regular use of household cleaning agents with asthma. By treating the whole body, a person with these conditions can optimize their health.
The desire to succeed at work or school can lead to a great deal of stress in our fast-paced world. Our bodies try to compensate, yet chronic stress often leads to disease. Chemicals in our environment can hinder people’s ability to have children. Women can experience PMS and bloating, anxiety, depression, hypothyroidism, and hyperthyroidism. Women also suffer symptoms associated with menopause such as hot flashes, night sweats, emotional fluctuations, and possible bone loss that could develop into osteoporosis. Men experience hormonal changes over time related to stress or the aging process. These conditions can all be treated with nutritional supplements, botanicals, homeopathic medicines, proper nutrition, lifestyle changes, and exercise.
Heart Disease, Diabetes, and Cancer
Heart disease remains the number one cause of death in Canada. The number of Canadians with Type II diabetes is expected to climb to three million in the next three years. Diabetes can cause blindness, nerve damage to the extremities, and kidney failure. Natural medicines reduce the risk of developing heart disease, diabetes, and cancer; and minimize the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation treatments and often reduce the spread of cancer while supporting your overall health.
